I even do custom SQL engines and disk drive sector-level database formats optimized for SSD wear leveling, spinning disk head positioning of most likely used data and other optimizations.
I utterly will not do .NET or Direct-X when my library does it sooooo much better
My own command to play a video file:
That's it! Easy as pie! All the low level stuff is automatically taken care of by my own internal code!
